The design transforms a parking lot and a windowless 1960s former aerospace factory into a landscaped campus and creative offices for a global entertainment company. The program included two theaters, digital review rooms, two recording studios, art & story rooms, fitness center, cafe, and render farm.
The campus is organized around a tree-lined “main street” that connects the parking to a series of landscaped outdoor rooms that converge on a large covered entry plaza. A wood deck connects the building entry to the shared campus amenities, including the cafe, fitness center, and main common spaces.
Over 12,000 sf of maple flooring was reclaimed from a demolished high school gym floor located in Los Angeles and used to clad the wall and floor of the main common space.
